obama and our incredible and amazing leader congresswoman nancy pa loes si, in march of 2010, president obama signed the comprehensive health reform that we probably have heard a lot in the last couple of years. it is the patient protection and affordable care act which many people referred to as the aca or obama care which is something that we have affectionately appropriated because the term was use ined a derogatory way, we think it's a positive way, this law does many things but perhaps most importantly, it makes preventive care more accessible and more affordable for so many americans and i'm excited to be here to begin a series of hearings that we will be holding on the affordable care act so that we have in san francisco a smooth as transition and implementation as possible. today's hearing will focus on how the aca and our local health care security ordinance work in tandem to make health care and health insurance truly accessible to as many san franciscans as possible. you know, the thing about the health care security ordinance, it was really an example of how san franciscans

of obama care implementation, or that's what my worry is. if other ruminating of this advice may have a list of anecdotal evidence and howell they take care of their employees, if you must look to anecdotal evidence, look to the young kids in their 20's who are trying to get a start in their restaurants or any other business, we take kids who can get hurt easily and we have to give them an option for health care and it's hard to pay 2 thousand dollars for one bedroom apartment for this town, so i've been one of those kids and my family and my friends are all those kids, they come from service backgrounds, they work hard in kitchens and they need a place without having to share a bedroom because to share a bedroom could cost them an extra thousand dollars, it's ir realistic and irresponsible to have them pay out each month. so, be clever, find a way to reinforce this legislation, it's a standard that's unparalleled and should be enhanced, should not be backed down on and you should not leave it alone and make it stronger and not weaken it, for those restaurant owners to see it wadeable
